BHA BeFriend is a Big Lottery funded project set up to support older people living in Berwickshire and Kelso.
BeFriend volunteers visit older people who are lonely and isolated. They provide someone to chat to, someone to go out for a coffee with or for a walk around the park. As well as one to one befriending there are also befriending groups.
We are now seeking a Project Administrator who will provide general administration support to a small staff team and a large voluntary befriending team.
In addition you will be expected to help with volunteer recruitment; training and the support of the older people who are our service users.
You should have at least one year’s experience of general office administration, be able to work flexibly when needed, and have your own transport available when required. Preferably, you should also have experience of working with older and/or vulnerable people.
